During this holiday season, we have JOYOUS news … some secret SANTAS (aka a few Pulaski families along with the Bucktown Community Organization) are expressing THANKS for our wonderful school with a generous PRESENT – a holiday matching campaign. We need your help for the full impact to be realized.
Earlier this fall, Friends of Pulaski, in conjunction with the school, launched the first phase of an ambitious technology plan to help our students grow by providing our 6-8 grade students with Chromebooks! Over the next few months and years we will be rolling out additional devices to all of the classrooms at Pulaski, and we seek to realize our goal of 1 to 1 technology for all of Pulaski’s students!
However, our work is not done. With additional technology comes increased opportunity to provide one of the foundations of our IB program, personalized learning! We have so many students performing well above their grade levels, and teachers are aiming to differentiate more so that they can truly teach to all students in a more personalized way. They need resources to support personalized learning, and to do this, we need your help! This will include everything from computer applications and programs, to leveled text in classroom libraries that are age appropriate, along with other opportunities for enrichment. Every teacher will participate in this and the funds will be used directly in the classrooms to assist every Pulaski student!
We are excited to announce that these Pulaski families, wishing to remain anonymous, have pledged $6000, together, as a matching gift to help increase funding for personalized learning! This means that every dollar you donate to Friends of Pulaski will be doubled, up to $6000, between now and December 15, 2017. Even if you donate $10, you are actually making sure the school gets $20! Amazing!!!
Donating to Friends of Pulaski is easy and can be done in two ways:
1. Donate by credit or debit card: Click on the “Matching Donation Campaign” link. The Friends of Pulaski website will give you the option to make a “one-time” or “recurring” (i.e. monthly) donation. Our generous donors have agreed to match all new or increased recurring donations through the end of the year.
2. Donate by check/cash: Please use the enclosed envelope and, if donating by check, make a check payable to “Friends of Pulaski”.
You will receive a receipt reflecting your donation for tax purposes. Your donation is tax-deductible. Double your impact and help us reach our $12,000 goal ($6000 in new donations) between now and December 15, 2017. Please help maximize this opportunity by giving as much as you can. DONATE NOW! But please act fast – we only have until December 15, 2017 to meet our goal.
With your help, we look forward to delivering even more to our children’s education.
